. there are people who want to serve when the economy changes, could impact this? yes. but right now, i feel it is not impacting our recruiting. it does not impact our quality operationally, and hopefully that will continue. >> you have been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you have three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job, it was not in the middle of the night and waking up and saying, what would i do if i was the chief? you have other things on your mind. what has surprised you the most in coming into this circumstance? >> well, i think, -- i guess i've got to be careful. one of the things i tell everybody what i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the core there, have the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions. that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. that is probably one of the biggest adjustment. i had to realize i did not have complete autonomy. i knew that, but it took me a while to understand that really. the real challenges that we have are that we have this large orga
a plan to get this economy going. >> paul: and joining the panel this week, wall street journal columnist and deputy editor dan henninger, political diary editor jason riley, james freeman and washington columnist kim strassel. >> any evidence that hurricane sandy is going to affect this race? >> i think, yes, i think it might, in the sense that -- i think one of the big elements in the race is the level of enthusiasm on both sides. my strong sense, paul, this is an enthusiasm deficit on the democratic side. >> paul: all the polls show that. >> all the polls show that and i think it's a going to be a determining factor, now, new jersey, new jersey, maryland, it isn't going to decide whether-- obama will win those states. his popular vote may be down, i think the hurricane is going to suppress the popularity vote. >> paul: dampen that. >> and i spoke to a pollster not working for the obama campaign and agreed with dan's sentiment, turnout was an issue for democrats, enthusiasm is down, but also says that he thinks this allowed obama, even though he missed some days on the campaign trail, a
for a while. >> it is time for a new economic ta patriotism. rooted in the belief that growing our economy begins with a strong and thriving middle class. >> i get it about the class. but if we hit people with more tax people who are work maybe doing pretty well and somehow it is more patriotic to pay more taxes, i love what arthur godfrey said. he was proud to be a tax paying american and he could be just as proud for half of the money. it is not a matter of patriotism for the government to take more and more of what we earn and redistribute it not so much to people who are absolutely desperate and in need. but just to people who kind of like to have what somebody else had. there no patriotism in that. it is working hard and not expecting our government to do something for us and expecting us to do something for our government. there was a democrat named john f. kennedy. he had it right. ask not what your country can do for you. ask what you can do for your country. the way i was brought up. democrat or republican. that was patriotism. the obama late night talk show mirn tour continued th
reading on the economy before election day shows stronger than expected job gains. but more people were look for work last month and that pushed unemployment a tenth of a point higher to 7 .9%. still a pickup of 171,000 jobs is significant. economist stewart hoffman calls it the real deal. >> a good gain in jobs, a widespread gains, this isn't a fluke, it's a genuine improvement in the jobs market. >> in a moment lou dobbs will tell us if he agrees with that point of view. here is what is really happening. unemployment ticked up to 7.9%. however, there were more jobs available in october. in fact, the workforce rose by 578,000 americans. that's good. the reason unemployment went up is because more americans are now looking for jobs because more jobs are becoming available. the bad news is that unemployment among african americans jumped almost a full percentage point from 13.4% to 14.3%. that is a disaster. also, the real unemployment rate in october was 14.6%, including people who have given up looking for work. bottom line, 12.5 million americans who want to work, can't find employmen
, the unemployment rate rose to 7.9%. 47 million people are on food stamps. our economy is still on life support. and our country is $16 trillion in debt. we cannot afford four more years like the last four years, but that is exactly what president obama is offering. instead of developing a plan to address our serious challenges, his campaign is focused on phony issues. and instead of thinking big, they have wound up looking small. the question of this election comes down to this -- do you want more of the same or do you want real change? president obama promised change, but he could not deliver it. i promise change, and i have a record of achieving it. we need a real turnaround if we are going to get our economy growing and get americans working again. and i have led that kind of effort many times before. during my 25 years in business, i helped people turn their dreams into success stories. together, we built names like staples, bright horizons, and the sports authority. and helped create over 100,000 jobs. when i became governor of massachusetts, the economy was in bad shape and our budget wa
, this means jobs and the economy is an issue that is certainly front and center ended is the number-one issue, but it may not bring home as much as other issues -- ring home. host: what are the swing areas of that states that have historically provided the winner with the electoral votes? guest: by now we are seeing that the candidates are coming into -- particularly the president's campaign has been coming into the sea coast, rockingham county area, cities like rochester are certainly areas that are indicative of what may happen in this election. but the other location candidates are coming into is the city of nashua, the second- largest city in the state. we are seeing the president was there a few days ago last saturday. it seems to be a place that is being fought over. it's along the massachusetts border. massachusetts is the stated that governor romney led. so it is a very interesting area. many of the people from nashua work in massachusetts. host: who are the voters in this area? guest: new hampshire has traditionally libertarian streak. our motto is live free or die. it is a tossup lo
in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think
obamacare. its stifles the economy, and it does not reform health care. it is going to take $10 billion from the economy on an annual basis it does not work, so we need to talk about the past. one is more government control. >> senator, your response. >> first, i want to thank the networks and my family, my wife of 35 years, my daughter, and my other daughter, and 60% of the grand kids are here. it is good to have james here. jobs are critically important, and i think if you take a look at what is wrong with washington, d.c. compan, there a long list of people. the jobs bill as a prime example that you brought up. it is interesting the gentleman i am running with is hyper partisan. he mentioned rosa, and she has gotten off hold of me and said he has not been much of the health on the subcommittee, and quite frankly, what needs to be done is people need to work together as americans. is when doesion thi politics trump jobs? is it when clean air or clean water is at stake or perhaps politics? >> the answer is jobs, and we need to create an environment in washington, d.c., where we are working
, to big an economy. the government can effect the direction of developments not the degree. >> the medication isn't that much stronger. i mean, you rule out protectionism, trade wars with china that kind of stuff which a lot of people reach to as a cure what's in the disease. >> yes. >> you're obviously strongly in favor of a marshall plan for middle class skills. community colleges. >> absolutely. and i think we can do some pretty radical things in education and training. you know, i don't see why education should be -- should cost -- why higher education should cost any american more than a nominal amount. i think that we can give tuition-free scholarships to everyone who attends public schools, public universities. and we have great public universities in america. and it would be a matter of rechanneling the student aid we now provide into this. and it would take it away from the private universities. i am saying look i'm a product of private universities but as a matter of public policy the distribution of money between the private and public sector in education i think
of shutdown or default and that of course chills the economy, puts more people out of work. the president was right when he said he can't change washington from the inside. you can take him at his word. that's why we're going to send him outside. all right? when i'm elected i'm going to work with republicans and democrats in congress. i'm going to meet regularly with their leaders. i'm going to endeavor to find those good men and women on both sides of the aisle who care more about the country than they do about politics. and together, we're going to put the nation back on track to a balanced budget and to reform our tax code and to finally reaffirm our commitment to financial responsibility. now, if the president were to be re-elected he would continue his war on coal and oil and natural gas. he would send billions more to his favorite friends and all of this means higher gasoline prices and fewer jobs. today gasoline costs twice what it did when president obama took office. and when i'm elected, we're going to change the course of energy entirely. i know just how much energy means to mi
than on the day obama took office. he has not met on the economy or the budget or on jobs. with neither of the republican leader of house or senate since july. >> the president and governor romney reacting to the october jobs report. 171,000 jobs. the u-#, the broader, under employment rate if you will is 14.6. that is what it has been. then if you look at the adjusted unemployment rate, this is the unemployment rate is the labor force was equal to what it was in january of 2009. what about this and how it plays to the race? bill kristol of "weekly standard." kirsten powers for daily beast. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles? >> these are the numbers you get when you have a stagnant economy. stagnant unemployment. if you keep up with the numbers of jobs added, barely enough to keep up with the increase in population. unemployment takes up. people's perception of the economy have been fixed. unchanged for at least six months. so i think it has zero effect on the economy. on the election, i mean. in terms of the people who vote on the economy. so i think it's probably a
, so it's not been a great improvement in the economy. we've had a very -- >>ity an indicator of which way the economy is -- is it an indicator of which way the economy is going? >> it has not healed enough, when you take into fact we spent $4.5 trillion in deficit recovery,. >> and an improvement ratio? >> not improving. >> not on that path. >> it's not on that path. >> is it an aberration? >> bureau of labor stats on this. have you requested them? >> yes, they don't tell you a lot of things. like the labor force participation rate. which has dropped toyorelatively low numbers, which makes the unemployment numbers lo better. >> in hindsight, when he critizes the last month's report. >> last month in crthe last month's report, the only reason that number got better was 582 people thousand left e the calculation, and went to work on a part-time basis, so the part-time jobs got better, bu we did not, they took these people out of ofthe denominator. >> those numbers are not that -- >> nay says finish? >> we're being accurate. >> i would say that's the nay-ers. if you look at the economy,
hampshire's economy is humming along and unemployment is at less than 6%, so when president obama and mitt romney visit the battleground state, their stump speeches tend to include promises of more job creation. our david mattingly visited two small businesses there to see what their executives think about the candidates' proposals. >> reporter: randi, victor, the unemployment rate in this critical battleground state is under 6% and well under the national average, so when it comes to campaign promises about creating jobs, businesses here say leave that to the professionals. two new hampshire small businesses that found a way to beat the recession. one is a free-wheeling tech company. producing codes that makes e-mail and the internet work better. the other has been in business for five generations. >> high carbon steel photograph needles. >> reporter: manufacturing metal pins for everything from antique phonographs to the military. >> these are ping that go into the ammunition boxes for the u.s. government. >> reporter: in tough times they both found ways to create new jobs. what every ca
better if we intend to compete in the global economy. last year, i traveled to china, and i visited several universities. the gnarl investment -- national investment in these universities, research facilities, and higher education is something to behold. over the last 30 years, china has had a 58-fold increase in spending in education, health, and social investments. according to o report from the center for american progress, by 2030, china will have more than 200 million college graduates, more than the entire u.s. work force. in five years, india will be producing five times as many college graduates as the united states. these are the facts that drive the decisions we must make as we position penn state to succeed in the future. part of that strategic planning requires getting out and staying out in front of the information technology revolution, which has been among the most significant drivers of educational change in the last 15-20 years. it's also been like a run away train. one response to the higher education funding crisis has been increased appeals, especially from legis
>> what did you learn? >> the economy is improving. i learned parade has 88 million subscribers and i listened to eric smith on the way in. >> thanks to you all and for the morning joe team great work this week as every week. you guys ar maizing. thank you so much. all right. it's way too early. mark halperin, what time is it? >> stay tuned for "chuck today and the daily rundown." >>> a better than expected jobs report just days before the country decides who will be the next president. 171,000 jobs added in the month of october and revised reports add another 84,000. the initial reaction is positive. does it move any votes? 88 hours in ohio. that is what the next few days will feel like. president obama and governor romney are in the buckeye state as if the whole race may depend on it. guess what? it probably does. we'll go live to the site of the president's event this morning near columbus. there are more than just two guys running for office. house republicans could actually pick up a few seats on tuesday. we'll talk to the gop's man in charge of holding on to the house and
, the military and the economy. and what's going to happen with it. >> i think it's really important that we have a president who understands the needs of all the people and isn't just focused on the wealthiest. >> i'm probably going to say jobs, especially with the insurance with obamacare because what they're doing right now is, i just don't think that washington has any comprehension what's going on. >> i want bipartisanship and people working together is my biggest issue. >> my wife is always right. >> so, it's interesting to get their perspective, even though most of them do not want to say who they were voting for and it's worth pointing out, uma, the senate race is airtight as well. republican george allen and democrat tim kaine raised combined 30 million dollars, outside groups pumped in another 40 million and at this point today, three days out, they are essentially tied. back to you. >> wow, a very, very tight race indeed. thank you very much. we'll wrap up our team coverage in florida where governor romney is maintaining the lead over the president and two key voting blocks in florida,

for the president? >> i think if you look at all the economic indicators and where we've seen the economy move over the last three years, especially given what the president inherited in 2009, americans should feel good about the direction we're going in. we've had 33 straight months of new private sector jobs added. second month under 8% for unemployment. we still have work to do. that's what's so important about this election. we need to stick with president, show up and vote for the president so we can keep the policies moving forward that have gotten us headed back the right direction. and not go backwards to the economic policies of the past, the ones that mitt romney is advocating for where you have a trickle down economic attitude. that's exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. we feel good about the report on friday. we know there's a on the more to do. and the president is going to keep working until every american who wants a job can get a job. but we feel like the economy is a good issue for us and the president is proud of his record. >> brent colburn, hope you get some s
debt in liabilities threatened to crush our feature. our economy struggles under the weight of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. >> now, during monday's debate, he noted the immediate danger of debt, too. >> admiral mullen said that our debt is the biggest national security threat we face. >> but what would president mitt romney do to slash the debt? well, given everything we know now, his plan doesn't add up. we know three big things about romney's plan. one. he wants to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties o
are doing in the state when there is early voting. >> let's look at where we are on the economy and the gdp nun numbers and the unemployment numbers. this must not have been the kind of growth that barack obama was talking about, was promising when he stood in front of those crowds in chicago on election night four years ago after having been declared the next president of the united states. such a big moment for the obama family. he must have stood there hoping four years from that night things would look a lot better economically speaking than they do today. >> let's look at the numbers. the gdp numbers that came out this week were above what they were projected to be. we saw a few weeks ago that unemployment was below 8% for the first time since the president took over in the midst of the worst economic crisis since the great depression. we all agree we need to do more. we agree that things can get better. but this president has done incredible things considering the republicans in congress have said from day one they will say no to anything he wants to do. not just for the economy, but
. we were losing like 800,000 jobs a month. and now we are coming back. i just think the economy is getting a lot better now under a democratic administration. host: i appreciate the call from kentucky this morning. i want to point out another facebook post. this from justin from the upstate new york area. he writes -- at least i am not bombarded with a negative campaign ads while i am watching jeopardy. let us go to rwanda from oklahoma on our line for republicans, how is the campaign playing out in a solidly red state of oklahoma? caller: yes, we are the reddest of the red states. everyone of our counties has gone to mitt romney, and i think we will do it again. what i am calling to about is something that you will never hear from mitt romney, that he does not talk about, that he does not solicit people to speak about, and that is about his incredible generosity. we have heard on television the people coming forward and speaking about the times that he has, without any publicity, that he has contributed to their welfare and so many different ways. he has set of hospital beds an
economy standards to 55 miles per hour by the year 2025. that not only backs out 3 million barrels of oil a day from the persian gulf, all of the oil they import from the persian gulf, but it also reduces one full year of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. mitt romney is saying he'll roll back those standards. all the way down the line, there's a sharp contrast here of, you know -- there are no emergency rooms for planets. we either engage in preventive care here and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that go into the atmosphere, or we are going to see ever greater intensifying catastrophic events hitting our country and causing tremendous damage to the american people. >> congressman, thanks so much for coming on the program. we appreciate it. let's go live to roanoke, virginia. mitt romney is at what they're calling a victory event at integrity windows and doors company. let's listen. >> it was powerful to listen to jake and to speak with his sister susan. the two of them are leaders, the top two people in their company. they're making products for america. they and their
show how tough the economy is. 17% on food stamps. i'm glad we have unemployment programs and food stamp programs and i'm glad we have a number of companies that have come to delaware. we have not done enough. we have to much burdensome regulation. we still raised taxes during this recession which we drove back. personal income tax and we need to create a stable business environment. we have not done a good enough job creating that environment and that is borne out by the numbers. >> where do you stand on your blueprint for delaware? >> we have implemented the majority of items in their and we have more to go. some of them we did not have the resources. i said we ought to create a delaware version of a cops bill. we have made progress there as well. it is not spin to the hundreds of workers were back at the refinery. it is not spin to the people who decided to expand in delaware. it is not spin to the folks at foxfire printing who are adding dozens of jobs. it is not spin to the people at jpmorgan chase. these are real jobs, real families being put back to work. >> fill free to off
it on the economy. there maybe resents but he has not do it -- done it. lou: i am confused with the reasoning, led the national media dropping in the bail of pretense and simply supporting one man now through reelection use it just somehow governor romney would influence what they did or did not do? >> i am saying he could make it a big issue by commenting. he has not done that. there is one thing how you push the story and it is one thing for fox. lou: but now to a knowledge fox has been right. now we hear from abc will lease chronicles the efforts of others. "washington post" now chronicling the documents they found on a october 26 it is in benghazi at the consulate. where has the media ben? >> mitt romney could put this on a front-page. >> i heard you say that three times. i still don't believe it. >> this is not about governor romney but a corrupt actions from the media not to cover this pri is negligence and dereliction of duty not have a press conference or a time line specifically what happened. what did the president do that night, what orders did he give? lou: we have a gutless national l
